Hello Ron , Absolutely a NON-ORIGINAL TRACTOR is worth less money than an ORIGINAL TRACTOR just as it goes for Cars and Trucks . Any tractor any brand or color that has survived Farm Service for 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years that has been properly maintained and serviced and has retained all of it's original parts including paint and decals is a rare find especially if it has had only a couple of owners is definately worth more than any tractor that has been patched together with parts from other tractors regardless of how well it has been done.(I am not talking about properly done engine or transmission rebuilds on high hour tractors on the original cores, that is still original) There is always a reason why tractors, trucks or cars are patched together LACK OF PROPER MAINTENANCE and SERVICE. Every SINGLE breakdown on my Uncle's farm came from lack or service due to him being to cheap to do it , yet across the street my other Uncle with the Logging business was just the opposite the amount of failures could be counted on one hand during the same time period and all of us were the same Mechanics and Operators between the two . Every piece of equipment that I own tractors, loaders, backhoes, dump trucks are original even down to paint and decals except two of them(repaints) and I am either second or third owner on all of them many had very low hours when bought and a couple had 4000 and 5000 hrs on them .
